send myself mail as root, nor does root send me mail. All I want is
for the system mail to be sent to root and for newaliases to route
it to me.

(there was no name in the 'from' field, but that is because I didn't
define an identity, as can be seen above). Do you think this
configuration is all I need to get what I want, without any errors
or loss of system mail?
It should be, but I am not an expert on esmtpc - My need are more
complicated, so I run Postfix.
